JT answers and discussion

 

  1. Bob – POINT: Our self-identity is very important because that will tell us from within how we respond to various situations. If we see ourselves as a confident person or if we see ourselves as a nothing… OR in the case of a Christian, he/she sees themselves as a child of God, under His rule and His care…

 

John 10:27–30 (ESV) — 27 My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me. 28 I give them eternal life, and they will never perish, and no one will snatch them out of my hand. 29 My Father, who has given them to me, is greater than all, and no one is able to snatch them out of the Father’s hand. 30 I and the Father are one.”

  1. JTQuestion ONE - FROM THE SPIRITUAL SIDE OF LIFE….

 

How should we view ourselves as a Christian? What difference does it make.

 

  1. Bob

 

First from the Heidelburg catechism…1563

  1. Q. What is your only comfort in life and death?
  2. That I am not my own,[1] but belong with body and soul, both in life and in death,[2] to my faithful Saviour Jesus Christ.[3] He has fully paid for all my sins with His precious blood, and has set me free from all the power of the devil.[5] He also preserves me in such a way[6] that without the will of my heavenly Father not a hair can fall from my head;[7] indeed, all things must work together for my salvation.[8] Therefore, by His Holy Spirit He also assures me of eternal life[9] and makes me heartily willing and ready from now on to live for Him.[10][1] I

Such confidence and HOPE

 

Ephesians 1:3–7 (KJV) — 3 Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who hath blessed us with all spiritual blessings in heavenly places in Christ: 4 According as he hath chosen us in him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and without blame before him in love: 5 Having predestinated us unto the adoption of children by Jesus Christ to himself, according to the good pleasure of his will, 6 To the praise of the glory of his grace, wherein he hath made us accepted in the beloved. 7 In whom we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of sins, according to the riches of his grace;

Psalm 68:19 (KJV) — 19 Blessed be the Lord, Who daily loadeth us with benefits, Even the God of our salvation. Selah.

  1. JT – Question Two… “FROM THE MENTAL ASPECT”

 

Why is having a proper self-identity important?

 

  1. Bob

Proverbs 23:7 (KJV 1900) — 7 For as he thinketh in his heart, so is he: Eat and drink, saith he to thee; But his heart is not with thee.

  • We tend to act out the way we see ourselves – for good or bad
  • We need a proper view of ourselves in the light of the scriptures

.

  1. (JT) Third Question …. Turning to the physical aspect of life….

 

  • Let’s talk about eating… LIKE WHAT DO YOU EAT before – DURING – and after workouts?

 

  1. BB & JT discuss ---
  • BEFORE
